I'm thankful for Gillian's imagination. She can turn balloons into a party, rocks into memories and stuffed animals into her friends.
Gordie the Gourd came into Gillian's life on Friday November 5th and I warned her that he would eventually rot like the pumpkins. But that didn't stop her from falling in love with her and taking Gordie everywhere with her this past weekend. Hide the gourd was a huge game since Gillian brought her home.
Today when Gillian got home from daycare...Gordie the Gourd had rotted:( Gillian was devastated and there was sadness that her friend was gone. But like any child she eventually moved on.
I don't like to see her sad but we are blessed that she cares so deeply for the people and objects that surround her.
